Life Coaching, Counseling, Therapy in Traverse City, MI—Overcoming Personal and Professional Challenges

At times, life feels out of control. One moment, life is normal and predictable, and the next, it is scary and erratic. Without warning, a diagnosis, crisis, or trauma can occur and turn the world upside down. Possibly, an affair has ended a long-term marriage. Possibly, panic attacks have disrupted normal life. Possibly, family members are having difficulty adjusting to a mental health diagnosis and treatment. The scenarios that can make life feel impossible and defeating are endless.

At other time, life may not feel out of control but boringly mundane. Every day may feel like the one before—running on a hamster wheel that always spins but never arrives. Time with friends, hobbies, and adventure have been replaced with errands, work, and honey-do lists. It does not take long for the daily grind to steal a person’s sense of self and dull their passion for life.

Most likely, you can relate. People regularly face hardship that threatens to overwhelm or daily life that threatens to steal joy or some combination of the two. One thing, however, is constant: difficulty is normal.

Even though everyone will face some challenge in their lives, people almost always feel alone and isolated in their problems. They often think, “No one gets this. Who would I even ask for help?” Social media may portray perfect lives, but the reality is that no one’s life is free from difficulty, and help is available.

Thriveworks Traverse City knows that life is tough, and our mission is to help clients overcome their personal and professional challenges so that they can thrive.

Meeting with a Life Coach or Counselor

Whether life is dull or whether it is chaotic, when people face a challenge, they often respond in one of two ways:

  1. Ignore the challenge and carry on as normal.
  2. Accept reality and make necessary changes.

In the short-term, option one is the easiest, but in the long-term, it causes more problems than it solves. Option two is the harder and better option, but no one has to face life’s difficulties and changes alone.

Asking for help is a bold move, but it is often the first step toward acknowledging and resolving a problem. Coaching, therapy, or counseling help people focus their attention upon their mind and emotions. They often begin to understand the problem and how to respond. Often, a path forward becomes clear, and people feel confident about the difficult but good changes they need to make.

Whatever may bring them through our doors, our clients often find that their Thriveworks Traverse City counselor, coach, or therapist has guided them toward…

  • Discovering an individualized treatment plan that addresses their unique symptoms and needs.
  • Recovering and prioritizing forgotten dreams and desires.
  • Identifying and overcoming counter-productive or self-defeating patterns.
  • Clarifying professional or personal goals that are grounded in their unique talents and skills.
  • Developing coping or interpersonal skills that promote healthy behaviors and negate destructive behaviors.
  • Treating any mental health diagnosis they may have with the right psychological interventions.

The therapists, coaches, and counselors at Thriveworks Traverse City love watching their clients overcome a challenge and thrive. Owning life’s difficulties and making adjustments is a painful process, many times, but it is almost always worth the effort. And Thriveworks Traverse City is here to help.
